Pacific Palms

Explore the natural beauty of Pacific Palms, a few hours’ drive north of Sydney, at gorgeous beaches and lakes perfect for a range of water activities. Relax on white sandy beaches such as Elizabeth, Blueys and Boomerang, where the Komunity Project Great Lakes Pro surfing event is held.

You’ll find secluded spaces and waters great for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and fishing in Wallis and Smiths lakes. Near the southern section of Booti Booti National Park is the Green Cathedral, a splendid outdoor church under a canopy of palms. The Booti Hill Lakeside walking track is a great way to experience the ocean and the lake.
